“When people approach me for advice on opening a shop, I always urge them to focus on something that isn’t seasonal. I don’t want them to make the same mistake I did, where I found myself working only a few months each year. Those specializing in fans and AC are busy during the summer, while those dealing with e-heaters and oil heaters have their peak season in winter. Realizing this, I changed my approach and ventured into the water pump business. I considered its year-round demand and decided it was a more sustainable option. Frankly, I had grown tired of working just five months a year and then sitting idle in my shop for the rest of the year. Living conditions are harsh these days, and relying on such limited work is no longer feasible.”
